Blood Pressure Clinics

Due to staffing issues, our satellite BP clinics were discontinued as of 4/1/2012.  We hope we were helpful in providing this service to you or your organization.

Child Immunizations

Walk-in clinics are offered at the Health District office every Thursday from

9-11 a.m. and the first Thursday and third Thursday of each month from

2:00 - 6:00 p.m.  LCHD participates in the Vaccines for Children program to help ensure that all children have access to the vaccines they need.

If you plan on bringing your child to clinic, please bring a copy of their immunization records and the child's Medicaid card, if they have one.

 

If the parent/guardian is unable to bring the child then a note giving permission for someone else to bring the child must be presented at the time of the visit. 

Childhood Immunizations mandated by the Ohio Department of Health are $20.00 per vaccination.  No child is turned away due to inability to pay.  Childhood Immunization Fee Schedule  

Every effort is made to give all vaccinations a child is eligible for at the time of a single visit to help keep children up-to-date according to the recommended immunization schedule.  Administration of as many vaccines at the same time as staffing will permit is also less traumatic for the child.

The Health District seeks to comply with the Healthy People 2020 goal that 90% of children will be completely immunized & up-to-date by the age of 3.

Call 937.651.6186 for more information.

Newborn Home Visitation Program

LCHD works with the Logan County Family Children First Council's Help Me Grow program in which a registered nurse can visit new parents and their babies in the comfort of their own home.  Each free visit includes helpful information about baby care, child development and support services available to the family.  

The nurse is able to answer questions the mother may have and provide a check up of both mother and baby.  

Call the Health District at 592.9040 to request more information.

SIDS

SIDS stands for sudden infant death syndrome. This term describes the sudden, unexplained death of an infant younger than 1 year of age.  Some people call SIDS "crib death" because many babies who die of SIDS are found in their cribs. But, cribs don't cause SIDS.  Click here for more information about SIDS.

Bereavement Visits

LCHD will provide a bereavement visit by a registered nurse for those who wish one.  Call the Health District at 592.9040 for more information.
